After researching his Gilkey family to his satisfaction, he decided to publish a book
Our next project was another family history "Oliver Ken-Folks"
We also assisted Barbara Smith in the transcription of the 1930 Lyon Co., Ky. census.
Our next two books were the 1880 and 1910 Lyon Co., Ky. census, which we transcribed and published, both have full name indexes.$25.00 ppd.
Another book we have is a reprint of the book Nineteen Years Not Guilty which was written by my great uncle Leonard Hankins in 1952. It is about the nineteen years he spent in a Minnesota Prison for crimes that he did not committ, and his final release.
1920 Lyon Co., Ky. census, $25.00 ppd., it was published in December 2004. This completes all of the Lyon Co., Ky. census records that have been released to date.
We have just completed transcribing the 1920 Crittenden Co., Ky. census, (hard cover only) $45.00 ppd., it was published in November 2008.
Some of the families Ken researches are Gilkey, Oliver, Waters and Lindsey.
I was born in Princeton, Ky. I attended East Side Elementary and Caldwell Co. High School in Princeton.
My Hankins line begins in Kentucky with Samuel J. & Luticia (Corley) Hankins.
They with most of their children came to Crittenden County, Ky. from Smith Co.,Tn. shortly before 1870.
Another favorite family for me to research is the Calvert family of Caldwell Co., Ky. I joined the DAR on Spencer Calvert
who was a Revolutionary War Soldier.
He is a 6 1/2 lb Bischon/Poodle, solid
white, with the blackest eyes and the sweetest little guy you ever saw. He loves everyone and never meets a stranger. He is especially fond of a little girl named Amber who lives just down our street and thinks he has to go see her everyday. He is the most excited when I tell him "the kids are coming" (our grandchildren).
Toby is 12 years old now, he has lost a lot of hearing but he is so smart he has learned some hand signals very easily and responds to them.
He still loves his walks and his toys but just for shorter peroids of time
And we love him more than ever!
July 4, 1996-Oct. 18, 2012
We lost our sweet Toby to Cushings Disease.
He gave us so many years of pleasure,
and he will always be missed!
